Every year, the Z Car Club Association celebrates its love of Nissan by holding a convention. This year, the 28th Annual International Z Car Convention (ZCon) was held in Memphis.
Nissan, of course, attended the convention and hit the road to ZCon in Memphis with fellow enthusiasts, VIPs, and employees on a 220-mile road trip from Nissan headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee.
At the convention, Nissan showcased an exciting lineup of past and newly-released cars, including the entire NISMO lineup, an original 240Z, a 2009 40th anniversary Z, the all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima, and the 2016 Nissan Titan XD. The featured car at the event was a 1974 260Z 2+2—the last Nissan lease vehicle used by the late Yutaka Katayama.
“ZCON is a great opportunity to showcase some of our most exciting vehicles – past and present – and celebrate Nissan’s rich sports car heritage alongside an outstanding group of enthusiasts,” said Pierre Loing, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc, in a statement. Furthermore, “with this year’s event so close to Nissan’s North American headquarters, it’s only fitting that we join Nissan fans on a road trip with an incredible lineup of Z cars, NISMO vehicles, the all-new 2016 Maxima and 2016 TITAN XD and more.”
At the event, held July 14 through July 18, attendees could participate in an autocross competition, driving tours, raffles, and more.
